IMPORTANT: I have moved my blog to marcellapurnama.com, so there would be no more updates in this blog.

However, this site would not be taken down for you to browse through my old archives. Thanks! See you on the other site!

Hi, my name’s Marcella, and I’m a writer. I’m also a coffee lover, movie addict, Disney mania, and quotes junkie.

My journey as a writer began when I started this blog in 2010. As a naive, young media student, I feel the impulse to just write, and write even more.

Through these pages, I will pour down all my random thoughts and encounters on life – about my accomplisments and failures, about learning and making choices.

Currently, I’m a third year Bachelor of Arts student studying in the University of Melbourne, trying to survive my final year with a double major in Psychology and Media and Communication.

That said, I’m also a columnist /  journalist at Meld Magazine, an online magazine for international students who are studying in Melbourne.

And all is done to tell others why life’s worth living. Because I truly believe in its beauty.

Randy Pausch once said, “I was trying to put myself in a bottle that would one day wash up on the beach for my children. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.”

Yet I am a writer. So I write.
